Organiser's Description


The Triathlon England East Region Relays in 2019 are proudly presented by Born2Tri, based at the quiet Boreham Lake facility, Trifarm. Trifarm is located within 10 minutes of Chelmsford and Maldon, Essex. This popular open water swimming venue is well known within the region for its clear waters, 1km off road running track and perfect local cycling terain.


The relay format will follow the ITU’s Triathlon Relay format which brings triathlon racing in its most thrilling format. Athletes must complete a super-sprint triathlon - 200m swim, 8km closed road bike and 2km run - before tagging off to a teammate. Among the most exciting aspects of these races for spectators is the athletes’ dramatic sprint  after being tagged by their teammate, as well as the intensity and speed from start to finish, the tight back-and-forth lead changes and team pride that this innovative racing format elicits.


Teams of four members can either form an all male, all female or mixed team with two males and two females (female - male - female - male).


Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Male team, 1st, 2nd, 3rd Female Team and 1st, 2nd 3rd mixed team. All competitors will receive an event t-shirt.


Entry Fee - £150 per team of 4. All team members must bring a valid Home Nations Membership card with them or pay the £5 day licence fee on the day.

Entry Limit - 120 teams

The race will be chip timed, 1 chip per competitor providing a split for each leg of the race.

On reaching the entry limit we will keep a small waiting list to replace those who have to withdraw.
